How we met
Amy was taking her pre-pharmacy classes while CJ was taking his pre-med classes when they met at Morgan State University in Baltimore in 2008. They started off as friends and still maintained their relationship even as they went off to different schools in 2009 to pursue their career paths. But miles could not separate these two friends.
For them, distance made their love grow stronger. Anyone can catch your eye, but it takes someone special to catch your heart over a distance. We felt this strong bond of love for each other, and we consequently started dating in summer of 2010. Since then, we have shared our joys, happiness and tears together. You see, each day we love each other more, today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow……Click here for their Pre-wedding shoot
